I’ve been doing these rolling TBRs and wrap ups for a while now. I’ve faced the fact that I never ever finish my 10 books on my TBR per month. So instead, I create a list and only get to replace what I actually read. So what did I actually read?
I only read 2 of the books on my TBR this season. I know, it’s horrible! But the two I did read were both incredible (plus, I continued the Mistborn trilogy after The Well of Ascension, instead of putting that off too).
The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2) by Brandon Sanderson // ★★★★★ // I finally read this one. I read the first book in the trilogy, The Final Empire, 3 years ago! I loved it, but never actually continued. So I decided to finally read this during the #TomeTopple. It was so incredible. Honestly. I never thought I could enjoy it more than I did the first one, but I was wrong. It’s one of the best sequels I’ve ever read.
Night Film by Marisha Pessl // ★★★★★ // I actually read this one during the #spookathon, so I guess I only manage to pick up TBR books during a readathon? This is obviously a sign I need to participate in more readathons. During the last few months of the year, I’ve tried to rekindle my old love for mystery books and thrillers. I’ve forgotten the mystery genre in the past few years, which is a shame. I’ve been missing out on amazing books like this one. It was definitely mysterious. And weird. And full of twists. And I adored every second of it. Plus, it’s a mixed media book which makes it that much more unique.
So I only read 2 of the 10 books on my TBR during the past 3 months. I might replace them with 2 other books, or I may just keep this list of 8 until I actually start reading them. I haven’t decided yet. Have you read any of these? Which should I make a priority? Also, do you have any troubles sticking to a TBR list? If not, what is your secret?
